Home Decor: Affordable Bookshelf Decor

Hi all! Today I’m sharing another home decor post. You guys loved my fall decor post where I showed you how I decorated my fireplace for fall. I recently posted a mirror selfie and got a bunch of feedback wanting to see my decorative bookshelf that I have in my living area.

I did my best to track down the items that I have on the shelves! A lot of pieces are from Home Goods, Home Sense or other home decor stores that don’t offer the ability for you to shop online. But really the point of this post is to provide home decor inspo – if you like an item here or there, I tried to link similar items below.

I really like mixing materials so I have wood, ceramic, steel, and more scattered throughout the bookshelf. I also love the pop of green that the faux plants provide. The bookshelf itself is from amazon and it comes in different sizes, so you can choose depending on what size room you’re working with.

It can be really overwhelming decorating a bookshelf. There are so many cute nick nacks out there, it’s hard not to buy everything. As much as I wanted to buy everything in Home Goods and Hobby Lobby, I kept each shelf to 2-3 items. Layering pieces on top and in front of one another is the easiest way to incorporate multiple pieces of home decor, without looking cluttered.

I’ll link the items I found below!

Home Decor: Fall Fireplace

How many pumpkins is too many pumpkins?! That’s the thought that was running through my head while I was shopping Home Goods and Hobby Lobby for some home decor items this past weekend. I ended up finding some really great pieces that will work not just through Halloween but all fall long.

The fireplace in my living room is the focal point so I wanted to bring it to life for my favorite season.  I kept everything really neutral. When it comes to decorating, especially for holidays, I tend to stay away from the true colors that represent say, Halloween or Christmas. You can totally still bring any particular season or holiday to light while keeping things light modern and neutral.

I wanted a really cozy feel so I picked up a this basket from Hobby Lobby to throw a bunch of blankets in. I like to keep it on the cooler side in my house so there is never as shortage of comfy blankets in my living room.

Next to that, I arranged 3 pumpkins together all with different textures. There is a ton of variety at home goods, and Hobby Lobby so choose your personal favs!

Another element I wanted to incorporate was warmth and light so I picked up some warm string lights to fill in a lantern. I included the cotton stems and the galvanized ‘Hi’ sign with the lantern to add some dimension with height.

I absolutely love how this little nook of my home came out! What’s your favorite season to decorate for?!
